It was another one of those days where I checked my cell phone for updates. As lunch was getting started, I saw the Red Sox were up 2-0. When lunch was finished, I saw they were up 7-0, having scored all the runs in the first inning!
I've got a good feeling about this, I thought.
I didn't check again until the game had ended, and it was a 14-2 rout.
The Bomb Squad was out for the Red Sox, with Dustin Pedroia (two hits in the first innings including the dinger), Carl Crawford (who also had four hits), Jarrod Saltalamacchia (boy is he hot right now) and David Ortiz all going over the wall.
Every starter had at least two hits except Jed Lowrie, who went o-for-5.
Jon Lester went six innings, allowed just three hits and struck out seven in getting his seventh win.
Kevin Youkilis and J.D. Drew did not play, and Youk says he will play against the Tigers in Detroit on Thursday afternoon.
